Atypical mortality events along the Thyrrhenian Sea Italian coastline
Starting from January 4, 2013, local and central Italian Authorities have been recording an unusual frequency of stranding of striped dolphin specimens (Stenella coeruleoalba) along the Italian coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
To date, 42 stranding events have been recorded variously distributed in Tuscany, Lazio, Campania, Calabria and Sicily coasts.
The Permanent Secretariat was advised by the Italian Focal Point, Dr. Oliviero Montanaro who sent the preliminary report drawn up by CERT, MMMTB and BDS.
The ACCOBAMS Scientific Bodies and Parties have been immediately informed to request them for any concerning similar events possibly occurred along the Tyrrhenian Riparian States coastline.
